Audrey remarried, apparently had lorraine for a while then she went to live with dad

Rambling

2nd marriage for Audrey 1961? so may give an idea of when Lorraine went to Australia, but might be just later than the passenger lists online.

EDIT so not this one.

Anything written in anyone's "Researching" box is nothing whatever to do with your query, Mandy.

Someone of that name did go to Australia. The Australian National Archives site, Immigration & Naturalisation.

Dates of birth for those in her generation have been xx

HUMPHRIES Thomas born 1 August 1924; Margaret Ella (nee Plant, Hindson) born 11 July 1927; HINDSON Linda born xx Dec 1947; Lorraine born xx Dec 1949; John born xx March 1959; Margaret Ella born xx Oct 1961; travelled per ELLINIS departing UK on 18 May 1964 under the Assisted Passage Migration Scheme

Her surname would have changed if she married, & those records won't be available under Australian law.

You may have better luck tracing her half brother(?) John Humphries. Pity he doesn't have a middle name.

The "Researching" box is intended for people to note names of people they're personally researching in connection with their own family trees, but is often used for general humorous comments such as Rambling and Rose have.
People often leave the same "Researching" notes there for years - they're not anything to do with anyone on whose thread they may be helping.

A search on Ryerson Index gives this précis

Surname Given Names Notice Type Date Event Age Other Details Publication Published
HUMPHRIES Margaret Ella Death notice 17DEC2003 Death Herald Sun (Melbourne) 18DEC2003

http://ryersonindex.org/search.php

Unfortunately, as it doesn’t give Age at death, we don’t know if it’s relevant to mother, daughter or an unrelated person

Sometimes we have to go sideways, even backwards, to move forward.

Got a feeling that the newspaper extract relates to this Margaret. based purely on the State of Victoria

Margaret Ella Humphries
Gender: Female
Electoral Year: 1977
Subdistrict: Mordialloc
State: Victoria
District: Isaacs
Country: Australia
Occ Home duties

Other Humphries at the same address -
Alan William - plasterer
William Thomas - Clerk

Probably not your family
